I started this blog so my daughters could find all of our family favourite recipes in one place. It has actually grown into more than just the family favourites but also other recipes we've tried out in our kitchen. I don't like to fill up the post with alot of chatter. Sometimes there's a little story to tell, but usually I like to get right to the point. So this is for them, but hope you find some recipes that you like as well. I'll be sharing a lot of recipes, and along the way you'll find some crafty things and maybe some helpful hints too! Welcome!

Chicken in Onion Gravy

I don't know if it's a rule or anything but mashed potatoes should always be served with gravy! This chicken recipe makes an awesome gravy for smothering both the chicken and mashed potatoes in!


3 bone-in chicken legs

2 tsps olive oil

1 tsp smoked paprika

1 tsp thyme

1 tsp onion powder

1 tsp garlic powder

1/4 tsp black pepper

1/2 tsp turmeric



4 tbsps flour

2 cups beef broth

2 tbsps dry onion soup mix

1 onion, thinly sliced


Preheat the oven to 400°F

Mix the smoked paprika, thyme, onion powder, garlic powder, black pepper and turmeric together in a bowl. Spray a 13 X 9" baking dish with oil and place the chicken legs in skin side up without overlapping. Rub olive oil on the legs then sprinkle with the seasoning mix. Whisk the flour with 1/2 cup broth then add the remaining broth and dry onion soup mix. Pour around the chicken and add the onion slices.

Bake in the 400°F oven uncovered for 45-50 minutes or until the internal temperature of the chicken reads 165°F.
Plate the chicken then stir the gravy and serve over both the chicken and the mashed potatoes making a "compulsory" mashed potato and gravy volcano!
